Everything We Know About Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Gyms

Today's Pokémon Presents revealed more information about how the gym system in Pokémon GO works.


Scarlet and Violet are effective Pokémon. You'll be playing as a student at an academy, and defeating some of the region's toughest trainers will be part of your schoolwork. Fair but difficult.

You'll either be attending Narania (Scarlet) or Uva, depending on which version of the game you have (Violet). You'll be going on a "treasure hunt" throughout the Paldea region as part of your curriculum. The treasure hunt has three different storylines, whereas the gym challenges only have one branch. So, aside from the time-honored tradition of taking down the gym leaders, you can probably expect a lot more sprawling content. There are eight more leaders between you and the "champion rank," and Victory Road awaits at the end of the journey. The trailer also featured Grusha, the Glaseado Gym leader, who uses ice-type Pokémon like the new Cetitan.

The trailer confirmed what an official Pokémon account had previously tweeted. Instead of stomping on gym leaders in a specific order, you can choose when to do so. Giving players the option to challenge gyms in any way they want is a refreshing change from the series' rigid formula. I remember when choosing Charmander was the "challenge mode" of the Kanto games because fire was terrible against the rock and water gyms, and not particularly good against the electric one. Those who chose Chikorita in the Johto titles ran into a similar issue. Scarlet and Violet's gym system finally puts all starter Pokémon on an equal playing field, and I'm all for it.

This isn't the first time Pokémon has experimented with an unusual gym system. In the Pokémon Sun and Moon games, gyms were replaced with "trials," in which players would sometimes complete puzzles instead of challenging the leaders (or battling the trainers who are working at the gym). However, the plot was still rather linear in comparison to what Scarlet and Violet had previously presented.

Scarlet and Violet will be available on the Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022.
